TFCC exclusive Piranacon

misb TFCC exclusive Piranacon, c-9.5

After weeks of anticipation, I finally collected my Transformers Collectors' Club exclusive Piranacon giftset today. I had pre-ordered it from a forum member at sgcollect who was doing a mail order for the item. Apart from collecting the toy, I'm also glad to have known another friend who shares the same passion as me. We also spent some time just chatting about TFs before another buyer came along to collect his set.
A redeco of the Generation 1 mold, Timelines Piranacon was available exclusively as an Official Transformers Collectors' Club-exclusive giftset containing all six Seacons in new color schemes. This set, unlike the original US giftset, also includes Nautilator. An estimated 1500 sets were produced to cater to the worldwide demand. The set comes in a boardgame-style hard cover outer packaging and botcon-style inner packaging. Initially reserved collectors must be rejoicing at the excellent packaging, and an excellent review of the item can also be seen in the video shown above. :)
